12/25/2022 FM38 Site Outage: Green Bay and Lake Geneva

Author: n9deg - Published 2022-11-05 20:11 - (609 Reads)
It seems we are having some trouble at a couple of sites with this cold weather. The Green Bay and Lake Geneva repeaters are currently down.

Due to experience, we expect Green Bay to come online once the temperature rises above single digits,

We are unsure of the issue with the Lake Geneva site, it has lost transmit audio. We are hoping it is also temperature related as well.
